Barack Like Me

Now that race is more important to Obama than ever, it's harder for a lot of Obama's fans to claim he'll lead us to a post-racial America. Of course, the claim has always been silly--his main qualification to get this done, according to the fans, seemed to be that he's black (or at least part black).

I'm afraid we won't be a post-racial America until we really don't care what the candidate's race is.

And I suppose that won't happen until there have been at least a few non-white-male presidents. We have a ways to go!
